Tendring: Anti-social behaviour drops by more than a third
Main article content
Incidents of anti-social behaviour have fallen by more than a third in the Tendring district in the past year.
Our officers work with Tendring District Council anti-social behaviour patrol officers and Tendring Community Safety Partnership to tackle anti-social behaviour across the district.
And this joint working has led to a 34.8% drop in anti-social behaviour in the 12 months to 31 July with 764 fewer offences recorded than during the previous 12 months.
Our community policing and town centre teams have been conducting high-visibility uniformed patrols and plain clothes deployments in Clacton town centre and the surrounding areas as well as Harwich and across the district.
There’s a public spaces protection order (PSPO) in Clacton town centre and along the seafront to help them to tackle anti-social behaviour which may deter people from visiting, such as street drinking and begging.
And we also continue to focus on reports of motorbikes being ridden illegally, anti-social behaviour and damage to beach huts.
“We understand that people are concerned about anti-social behaviour, particularly in the summer months, when we welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors to our coastline and to the annual Clacton Airshow. “We want everyone to enjoy themselves safely and responsibility but, if you do break the law or behave anti-socially, officers will deal with you swiftly and robustly. “Reports of anti-social behaviour continue to reduce and we will carry on working with our partners to get to the root causes of persistent offending, which often means getting people the help and support they need to divert them from such behaviour.” Chief Inspector Ella Latham, Tendring District Commander
